    In Spain some accessible toilets in public buildings or restaurants have keys to get in, but it’s a regular key that you have to ask the staff for. I don’t like the solution either as sometimes you don’t find the person in charge or sometimes they don’t find the key as they never use it. Sometimes, you may also find that the toilet has been turned into the storage room and it’s impossible to get in… I’d say that this used to be more common a few years ago as newer accessible toilets don’t tend to require any key to get in.

    The UK key that you talk about reminds me of traffic lights in Barcelona that you need a specific remote control to activate its acoustic signals, so not really convenient for blind people that come as visitors or tourists.

    I don’t know how’s the toilet situation in Belgium, though.
